Book Description

This text was designed with the goal of bringing together several areas that are often taught separately ­ namely, fluid mechanics, electrodynamics, and interfacial chemistry and electrochemistry ­ with a focused goal of preparing the modern microfluidics researcher to analyze and model continuum fluid mechanical systems encountered when working with micro- and nanofabricated devices.

About the Author

Brian J. Kirby currently directs the Micro/Nanofluidics Laboratory in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University. He joined the school in August 2004. Previous to that, he was a Senior Member of the Technical Staff in the Microfluidics Department at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California, where he worked from 2001 to 2004 on microfluidic systems, with applications primarily to counterbioterrorism. Professor Kirby received a 2002 R&D Top 100 Invention Award for work on microvalves for high-pressure fluid control, a 2004 JD Watson Investigator Award for microdevices for protein production and analysis, and a 2006 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) for nanoscale electrokinetics and bioagent detection. He teaches both macroscale and microscale fluid mechanics, and received the 2008 Mr and Mrs Robert F. Tucker Excellence in Teaching Award at Cornell University.

I am a graduate student at Cornell University. Despite my lack of knowledge in Fluid Mechanics, this book helped me to learn many things about this area. The way it is written is eloquent, it covers several essential areas of microfluidics and also there are many a useful appendices at the end of the book. I truly suggest reading this book to those interested in this area.
